Merry Christmas

It's been two months.  Time for another post.

The annual performance of the Messiah by the Cottonwood Community Choir and Orchestra was Sunday.  For 14 of their 16 performances, I've played clarinet in the orchestra.  Playing the Hallelujah chorus is truly a spiritual experience.  That is by far the greatest piece of Christmas music for choir ever written.  Sometimes in the middle of the music, with the choir singing, the trumpet (what a magnificent part it has) playing, the audience standing, I can hardly believe I am a part of this incredible paean to the Lord.

Have a wonderful Christmas and remember why we celebrate it.
